Goons make this game worth playing, I'm hoping one day I get enough skills + a decent ship and can go down to null sec and chase them around. P


They certainly make reading the forums more interesting, certainly with posts like this.

WoW holds your hand until end game, and gives you a cookie whether you win or lose. EVE not only takes your cookie, but laughs at you for bringing one in the first place...

I hate to say it, but I very much doubt 'you' are going to spawn a mass exodus from EVE or be some sort of martyr and messiah as you seem to wish to be for the oppressed carebears of EVE. Did I hate to say that? Maybe, but only because it had to be said.

That is what you want right? Spawn a mass exodus, be the messiah, save carebears by forcing CCPs hand? Sure looks like it, but you talk too much and generally don't have anything valuable to say from my perspective.. wait, there was one post that I recall reading yesterday that wasn't half bad. It's a good thing I don't block people just for making 20:1 bad posts to Good posts or I would have missed that and this.

Can't say I'll be sorry to see you go, but then all you ever seem to do is multi-post here about rather insignificant stuff. Goons Online? Psshh!

I can't say I like GoonSwarm very much. But they do hold the reigns of power, and I enjoy the fact that CCP isn't artificially intervening. You seem like someone who just took a way too expensive ship to Jita and paid for it, and is now ticked off.

See you back here in a few weeks, eh?

Enjoy playing Goons Online.

They are not in CCP's pockets. They ARE the Pockets.
I'll miss you. Remember me.

GS may do what they do and people may approve or not approve. But something that can't be argued is that they have undoubtedly done a bigger single service to EVE than any other group ever has. Easily filtered out most of the people no one wants to play this game, and easily identified the rest to avoid talking with!

"I hate the goons so i'm gonna make a topic saying i quit because of them ultimately feeding them and make them even happier" That's what i read in the OP. If you hate the goons, ignore them. Feeding them with tears, smacktalk, etc. only makes them stronger.

Besides the OP having confused weak with dumb is the problem not the dominance shown by the Goons, but the amount of crouching and kneeling done by all the non-Goons. Whatever people think of Goons, there is something equally wrong with the rest. At least from what can be seen on the forums. Lol

Loss is meaningful. Therefore is the loss of meaning likewise meaningful. It is the source of all trolling.

God damn look at all that hurf blurf.

But seriously, we can and will do whatever we want to you and your bitching is all the reason we need to do it.

You asked me once, what was in Room 101. I told you that you knew the answer already. Everyone knows it. The thing that is in Room 101 is the worst thing in the world.

And in game and Ill be the first to admit that.

However, three points to consider.

1.) Most highseccers wont work together outside their own corp. Theyve been well trained to "trust no one" so that kinda kills any hope of them ever massing together to attack Goons. Plus, Id bet there are more than a few Goon alt corps in that mass (given all the high sec alt hauler corps they reference to having) so yeah.

2.) Most high seccers (short on Incursion groups and weekend warriors) have never BEEN in a fleet or operated in ANY group in EVE. They wouldnt even know how.

3.) theres no way at all to coordinate a fight on the size of trying to take all of high sec and attack anywhere.

So, it would be all of high sec in their shiny faction BSes they run missions with (cause how many high sec capitol pilots are there and how many HAVE caps give we cant have them IN high sec) that invade 0.0 to be meat for the grinder of the well organized (funny huh?), extremely well funded (what a trillion a day?), trained PVP combat pilots if the Goon alliance.

FIRST, there are no high seccers going to run in in their "shiny faction BSes they run missions/incursions with" because rule numer one of EVE

"dont fly what you cant afford to lose"
Oh hey guys, by the way, THATS what causes that "risk averse" behavior youre always crying about. Unless youre a Incursion runner or a lvl 4 mega blitzer, you arent losting much and affording it easily.

Those high seccers are mostly gonna be showing up in small ships.

"But those are the types of ships Goon used to kill BoB"
Yeah so theyre well versed in how to COUNTER THEM TOO
I dont ever see ppl that realize that when someone says that in this conversation.

No, the only way you see a change in 0.0 or the state of high sec is is CCP desides to break the sandbox, which they WILL DO if enough people leave and they start taking a hit to their bottom line.

Mining is the "Deadliest Catch" in this game

Eve-Online is a video game. How I chose to spend my time in that video game has no relation to what I do in real life. Blowing up your internet space ship pixels has no analog in real life. Remember that you consent to everything we do to you the moment you log in. This is a two-way relationship.

Edit: Inappropriate part removed, CCP Phantom

Im not reading all of the endless shitposts of this thread but just fyi, Goons used to say the same thing about this when BoB was cyno DDing their asses all over the place.

Empires crumble. Goons aren't immune to this by any means. Meh
